There’s no doubt about it – facial moisturizer is a billion-dollar industry. But does loading up your face with all those unnatural chemicals really help? The truth is, some chemicals can be absorbed topically and may pose a threat to your health if used daily. In fact, 1,4-dioxin, a carcinogen, has been found in numerous moisturizing products.
Fortunately, there are numerous options for a natural facelift, many of which are affordable and can be found right in your own home! Natural moisturizers have been shown to be extremely effective, so feel free to throw away the chemically processed stuff and go all natural!
Just about any type of edible oil can be used as a facial moisturizer. While some may find it strange to apply oil to your face, it works well as a natural emollient and absorbs quickly. Coconut, olive, almond, and jojoba oil are all great options.
2) Shea Butter
Shea butter is made by extracting the fat found from fruit on a shea tree. It has a creamy yellow color that is loaded with beneficial antioxidants – just what your face needs!
3) Aloe Vera
An ancient remedy, aloe vera leaf is anti-inflammatory and cooling. Its soothing gel can quickly calm an irritated face.
Dermapen Treatment: Lift Your Face Naturally
Otherwise known as a vampire facelift, the dermapen is a microneedling cosmetic tool that creates tiny punctures on your face. These microscopic “injuries” will signal your body to increase collagen production as a healing mechanism. This can help improve scars, wrinkles, and sagging skin. However, it can be difficult to find a physician that understands how to use this cosmetic tool correctly. Here at Blatman Health and Wellness Center we’re proud to be a skilled provider of the dermapen treatment in Cincinnati.
